Renowned Author Releases New Guide for Accessible Travel

As the winter continues to thaw across the country, people are becoming increasingly eager to get out and enjoy some of the spring’s fresh air. For those who live in or are planning to travel to Utah this year, and who use a wheelchair or any other mobility device, a new book released by Candy Harrington can be your guide to the outdoors.

A Comprehensive Guide to Utah’s Wildlife

Harrington, whose library of published works is now approaching double digits, has just released a new guide that focuses on locating accessible trails across the beautiful state of Utah.

The book, titled Barrier-Free Travel; Utah’s National Parks for Wheelers and Slow Walkers, covers accessible trails, sites and lodging across many of Utah’s best national parks including:

  • Zion
  • Bryce Canyon
  • Capitol Reef
  • Canyonlands
  • Arches
  • And, so many more

From accessible trails and lodging options to accessible bus tours, ranger-led tours and camping information, Harrington’s new book is about as comprehensive as a guide can get. It even provides information on loaner wheelchair locations, special access paths and discounts, scenic drives and transportation to all the parks.

Using the book as a guide, any person, family or group can plan a detailed inventory for their trip to one or more of Utah’s national parks. Best of all, it covers every accessibility option, so there is something for everyone to enjoy regardless of the mobility device that they use.

Candy Harrington’s Past Work

It’s no wonder that Harrington is known as the “guru of accessible travel.” She has been writing accessible travel guides for more than 20 years. Just last summer, we wrote a feature about her book, Resting Easy in the US: Unique Lodging Options for Wheelers and Slow Walkers, which featured loads of accessible hotels, lodges, bed & breakfasts and many other accommodations throughout the country.

She has also authored other books such as 22 Accessible Road Trips: Driving Vacations for Wheelers and Slow Walkers, 101 Accessible Vacations:Travel Ideas for Wheelers and Slow Walkers as well as a few others. To see her full line of books, visit her website.
